  1. Atomic Layer Deposition on Particles for Nanoenergetic, Ferroelectric Capacitor and Thermal Management Applications

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: AF02T007

    High performance energetic materials are based on inorganic thermite mixtures such as MoO3/Al or organic compounds such as RDX. Future developments in explosives are dependent on the fabrication of nanoscale materials and composite mixtures that display higher energy release rates. The ability to tailor composite materials precisely at the nanoscale by fabricating multilayer component particles ...

  3. Modulating Vocal Effort Levels of Speech Signals for Distance Cueing

    SBC: IC TECH, INC.            Topic: AF05T002

    Auditory displays that encode spatial audio cues have advanced significantly in recent years, yet, their ability to convey the distance between a sound source and the listener remains limited. This Phase I SBIR project proposes to investigate algorithms capable of adding distance cues to natural and synthesized speech. The particular approach involves manipulation the speaker's vocal effort, wh ...

  4. Optimal Training System

    SBC: Micro Analysis & Design Inc            Topic: AF04T014

    Successful training in complex environments is normally accomplished through the interaction of a trainee and a skilled expert, but due to resource constraints, experts’ use in training can be problematic. Using an optimal model of task performance subject to human constraints may be a more efficient way to develop models of skilled human performance for use in training, especially since optima ...

  5. Optimal Training System

    SBC: Micro Analysis & Design Inc            Topic: AF04T014

    Successful training in complex environments is normally accomplished through the interaction of a trainee and a skilled expert, but due resource constraints, experts' use in training can be problematic. Developing expert models for training is one solution, but constructing expert models is costly and time-consuming, and they tend to be difficult to validate, test, and debug. Alternatively, usin ...

  6. Organic Based Flexible Transistors and Electronic Devices

    SBC: Organicid, Inc.            Topic: AF04T010

    Objective The objective of this project is to develop an organic solution-based CMOS process capable of producing printed RFID tags. Key to this objective is to optimize the n-type semiconductor and dielectric materials developed in Phase I, and to integrate these materials into a complete process line. The Approach CMOS utilizes p-type and n-type transistors to significantly reduce static power d ...

  7. Joint 3D Reconstruction of Static Background and Moving Targets Using Structure from Motion

    SBC: PERCEPTEK            Topic: AF05T006

    The United States Air Force has a compelling need for better automatic target recognition algorithms to distinguish between friendly, enemy, and neutral vehicles, for operation in complex dynamic environments where both opposing force and non-combatants are present. Unfortunately, current approaches either require sensors which are too heavy, too big, or too easily detectable, or they rely on ove ...

  8. MEMS Colloid Thruster Array

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF04T005

    Colloid thruster technology continues to be attractive for spacecraft propulsion, especially since its specific impulse can be many times greater than even the best bi-propellant chemical rocket. However, the technology was abandoned in the 1970s due to low charge-to-mass ratios, which lead to excessively high voltages and large inert mass fractions. The recent advent of microelectromechanical s ...

  9. High Energy Density Hydrocarbon Nanocluster Propellants

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: OSD05T001

    The performance of rockets and missiles is almost always limited by the energy density of the propellant, and the development of new types of higher energy density components remains an important research challenge. The energy density of hydrocarbon propellant components is normally increased by increasing the strain in the fuel molecules. With an energy density about 1.4 times that of conventio ...

  10. Kinetic Mechanisms for CFD

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: OSD05T002

    Development of scramjet engines is hindered by the lack of fast and accurate turbulent reacting flow CFD tools. Reaction Systems, LLC proposes to investigate new methods to extract minimal kinetic mechanisms from large detailed kinetic mechanisms to substantially decrease the number of additional species conservation equations required in CFD simulations of turbulent reacting flows. If successfu ...
